Urban development[edit]

The village remained historically small, limited to the nineteenth century to the church and fifteen houses set along the street from the Obelisk. The municipality had several minor hamlets: the Bourbelle, the Three Houses, Little Fortelle the Boutilliers, Wood Breton. Large farms maillaient territory: the Égrefins (fortified, pigeon), the Great Pigeonnières, the White terminal (fortified, disappeared). Construction of the new sanatorium-school Secondary School Students by architect Louis Sainsaulieu in 1955 next to the Castle Path (which was transformed into a sanatorium for veterans organization) was an important step in the life of the common. The development of the village was slow: at the beginning of the current General de Gaulle street before 1950 along Church Street around 1960. The development then slows in the 1970s, with some facility flags in the street of General de Gaulle. The 1980s knew no real development. The urbanization of the village took place in the early 1990s, in a context of population growth in part linked to the development of Val d'Europe and the installation of Disneyland Paris . The first subdivision located between the street from the Obelisk and the rue de Bellevue (rue des Bouleaux and street Saulnes) was implemented in 1992 and completed in 1994, establishing a continuity between the village and the farm Bellevue. The second subdivision located between General de Gaulle and rue the Obelisk (street Warblers rue des Mésanges) was implemented in 1994 and completed in 1997. The third subdivision of Reeds Street was built in parallel. The last subdivision street Harvest and street Spica was built in 2003. Urbanization is also made around the hamlet of Three Houses, with the establishment of lodges, although not to the village on the other side of the Marsange.
